LPI Learning entered into a partnership with the Connecticut Association for the Gifted(CAG). CAG’s mission is to support and advocate for Connecticut’s gifted, talented, and high-potential children of diverse cultural and socio-economic backgrounds so they are identified and provided access and opportunities to an appropriate education by personnel trained and qualified to meet their cognitive, social, and emotional special needs.

Connecticut is the first state in the nation to enact a policy to ensure all students, regardless of socio-economic background or zip code, will have access to gifted education resources. We are excited to partner with CAG to help enhance access to specialized programming for students and districts throughout the state.
